Finally after 130 shots I finally got "ONE", that was in focus, centered like I wanted, & where some part of my head wasn't cut off!

This was so much fun.

Thanks EVERYONE for the great challenge. I had fun commenting on 100% of these entrys! -BB

Cool shot! I like it! A fellow Star Wars fan!!! lol. I set my lens focus at 3 feet and then measured out a piece of string so I knew exactly where 3 feet was from my lens and shot mine that way. Great shot!! Love the expression!! Thanks for the comment!!

It's a pain in the butt to get focus on one's self, ain't it? You did a good job with it here (I had the same problem, by the way). I gave this a 6 in voting. I liked the pose, I liked the light on your face, and I like the sorta serious, sorta spooky feel to it. What I didn't like as well was the way the hoodie disappears completely into the background on the left side of the shot. A light behind you, maybe on the floor aiming up, to provide just enough separation of you from the background would give this added depth. Thanks again for commenting on all the shots - it's a lot of work and it is very much appreciated!

Really liked this one, gave it a 7. I think it should have scored a lot higher. Keep up the good work!

This is beautiful! The lighting had such a strong impact the minute it popped up on my screen. As far as portraits go, I'm giving this one a 10!

Now you just need a light sabre. Or a manifesto. Nice light usage.
